Danfoss will be , on the topic of medium-voltage (MV) drives and their application to the mining industry. Claudio Baccarelli, MV drives director, will be presenting some of the company’s leading and cutting edge industry solutions, together with interesting international case studies.hosting a webinar on 07 July 2021
“Mining, together with mining technology, continues to play an important role around the world, including in South Africa,” says Baccarelli. “The sector has a central role to play in global economies, creating jobs and generating tax revenue. Companies are increasingly relying on climate-friendly and energy-efficient machines and plants, and Danfoss has a significant offering in this regard to help make mining technology more energy-efficient, for example through alternative drives and reduced energy consumption.
“Even as we look towards a more climate-friendly present and future, raw materials remain an indispensable part of industry. For example, we see a rising demand for copper for use in renewable energy projects and electric vehicles. Conventional petrol or diesel-powered cars contain around eight to 22 kilograms of copper, while a battery-powered electric vehicle contains over 80 kilograms, which is a significant increase in requirement. There is a clear need to continue expanding copper supplies, and it could count close to one million tonnes a year until 2050 to meet an expected potential demand of 60 million tonnes, while the nickel and cobalt markets are facing similar supply deficits over the next few decades.”
“During my presentation I will demonstrate the great features we have in our product portfolio, which are able to ensure that our customers will be exposed to flexibility, reliability and creativeness as never before done with an MV drive, with particular reference to the mining industry,” he said.
